Ultimate Edition development notes

03 May


Revamp of Menu to include Network, Audio Production, Utilities and System. Sub-menus in Fun was necessary as the list is extensive. Will most likely include a Video Production enty.

Synfigstudio was going to be included but it interferred with inkscape. Inkscape is a necessary component as it handles additional file formats – whereas, synfigstudio functions are more than adequately covered by Xara and gimp.

Programmes applied and tested….

Blender-2.48a-linux-glibc236-py25-i386 – (Graphic Menu Entry)

  • ode-0.10.1-i686

The upgrade of gtk+2 changed the fonts for ROX – unable to make alterations in the gtkrc files so changed the global font size.

gnucash startup wizard would not function as well as a number of gui based accounts wizards. After testing it was discovered that the addition of the gnome-2.20 sfs file allowed this function to operate.


delete lib/udev + /etc/rc.d/udev – selective copy/paste careful to ensure over-writing did not occur.

Did not update to Audacity-1.3.6 as library dependencies interferred with other programmes – wxGTK upgrade was the culprit.

sunbird-1.0b1 – (Office/Briefcase sub-menu entry)

  • Vkeybd
  • hydrogen-9.1-1.1
